Polaris has issued a recall on approximately 1,600 Polaris General side-by-side ORVs when it was found that inconsistent tire pressure information can result in improperly-inflated tires, posing a crash hazard.
This recall involves all model year 2017 Polaris General Base and General Hunter two-seat, side-by-side recreational off-highway vehicles (ROVs). The General Base was sold in red and the General Hunter was sold in camo. “Polaris” is printed on the front grill, “GENERAL” is printed on the rear panel and “1000” is printed on the front panel. The VIN is printed on the left rear vehicle frame below the cargo box.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled vehicles and contact Polaris for a new tire pressure label and addendum to the owner’s manual. All known purchasers are being contacted directly by the firm.
